This is shaping up to be a huge year for Magic: The Gathering, and over the weekend Wizards of the Coast took to Chicago for MagicCon, revealing a look at a ton of new cards on the horizon—including big crossovers like Fallout and Assassin’s Creed, and brand new worlds in the Magic multiverse.


The Fallout set, due out in a few weeks, served as the main bulk of attention as Wizards unveiled cards from across the four Commander decks that are the basis for the set, pulling on not just the more recent games in the franchise, but the early Interplay classics too. Also highlighted was the upcoming crossover with Assassin’s Creed, which will form a more traditional set across pre-constructed starter decks based around the legendary ACII protagonist Ezio and Valhalla’s Eivor, Boosters, and more.

But Magic isn’t all crossovers—at least, not yet. While Wizards has been high on its Beyond subline, the main game is getting a very exciting boost of original cards this year in not one, but two new sets that will explore entirely brand-new settings for Magic’s lore. The first is Outlaws of Thunder, out in April, as Magic dabbles in Western Fantasy in a new plane inspired by classic cowboy fiction. The other is Bloomburrow, due out in August, which will whisk players into a setting with no human characters at all—only cute, anthropomorphic creatures, living their best Redwall life.

Click through to see tons of cards from Fallout, Assassin’s Creed, Outlaws of Thunder, Bloomburrow, and the third Modern Horizons set—bringing back classic cards and mechanics for the Modern format. And we mean tons!
